Lori Kiesler, Palmyra, was arrested and charged with armed robbery, criminal confinement and theft in Harrison County on January 8. 

The charges stem from her alleged involvement in a bank robbery at First Harrison Bank on Dec. 30.

According to reports from police, Kiesler walked into the bank with a firearm, demanded cash, then fled from a back door of the bank.

A motorist in a drive-through lane saw the robbery through a window and called police.

Bank workers recognized Kiesler as a former employee of the bank, police said.

Kiesler was found in Washington County and was being held there until she was taken to the Harrison County detention center.

The delay in charges being filed were delayed because she was receiving medical treatment.
